All About Dentures
Whether you have lost teeth due to periodontal disease, decay, or injury, Dr. Arash Hosseini knows that our patients in Gurnee want their smiles back and is proud to offer dentures to make that happen.
We offer traditional dentures and fixed dentures, as well as denture stabilization services. Full or partial dentures are appliances, usually removable, that fit over the gums and hold artificial teeth in spaces where natural teeth are missing.
Types of Dentures
A partial denture can be removable and fills in the spaces left by missing teeth. By utilizing partial dentures we can prevent your other teeth from shifting or moving position, causing a crooked smile.
Partial dentures consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by a metal framework and attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps.
Complete dentures are full dentures that replace a full mouth of missing teeth. After teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, a conventional denture will be created.
Typically, conventional dentures will be put into place about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed. On the other hand, immediate dentures can be utilized as you wait for your conventional dentures to be created.
The fit of your dentures depends on how healthy your gums are. That’s why we recommend you see us at least once a year for a denture check-up. Denture adhesives are a temporary fix at best, and we know our office can serve you better with proper custom-fitted dentures.
And no, overuse of your denture doesn’t cause it to wobble. That’s a result of changes in the mouth, mainly the natural shrinkage of gum tissue and bone. Again—we can help! Just reach out to our office and Dr. Arash Hosseini can help you figure out your next steps.
